Session: Creating a Top 500 Internet Website in C# for Dummies
Thursday, 14:20 - 15:10
Do you have what it takes to build a web-scale service? Is your puny web tier enterprisey enough to handle thousands of requests per second? You want the traffic? You can't handle the traffic! Jeff Atwood shares some key lessons in scaling and growing a large, public website on the .NET stack.
I was weaned as a software developer on various implementations of Microsoft's BASIC in the 80's, starting with my first microcomputer, the Texas Instruments TI-99/4a. I continued on the PC with Visual Basic 3.0 and Windows 3.1 in the early 90's, although I also spent significant time writing Pascal code in the first versions of Delphi. I am now quite comfortable in VB.NET or C#, despite the evils of case sensitivity. I currently work full time on my blog while building stackoverflow.com.
